TRURO – The Truro Raceway will be hosting its regular weekly races with a twist this Sunday, as the track unveils its grand re-opening celebration.
Spectators will be able to enter their un-cashed tickets for a chance to win one of several prizes available. Items to be given out during the day include a $450 barbecue, courtesy of Harris’ Home Hardware; propane tanks, courtesy of Wilson’s Fuel; and binoculars, pearl earrings and tool kits, courtesy of Pye Chevrolet Buick GMC.
For kids, there will be a horseshoe decorating station, as well as plenty of free colouring books.
Betting vouchers will be provided for those who are new to the races. There will also be “Own a Horse for a Race” contests and live musical entertainment.
Fans can take in the racing action from inside the newly refurbished grandstand or along the fence. Food and beverages will be served from the kitchen, which will be re-opening for the season on Sunday, as well as the ground level canteen.
